Ari Lerner will be talking about how to integrate Twitter's Storm, the distributed realtime computation system with ruby, particularly JRuby. Created in clojure, Storm allows developers to relatively easily build large, near-realtime data processing in little time.
What used to be expensive, convoluted, and difficult to scale, now is easy to build and integrate in your own apps. Combined with the power of Ruby, the process of integration has become incredibly easy. Think Hadoop for real-time applications! Bring your computers as this will be a workshop-like presentation.
